Storm damage: High winds take part of roof off building in Sandusky

SANDUSKY, Ohio -- Severe storms have left damage in parts of Ohio.

Sandusky Police Chief John Orzech says he believes strong winds damaged a building in their city, ripping off part of the roof.

He said the building, which is located in downtown Sandusky, is currently vacant.  He said part of the roof landed on cars.

“Fortunately no one was injured,” Orzech said.  He noted several trees and power lines are also down.

In Eastlake, police say a tree has fallen onto a home on Lakeshore and Stevens Blvd.

Willowick reports trees have brought down power lines in parts of the city.
